Floating floors card using Mama Elephant stamps

Hello everyone!

It's Friday and that means Alexandra here again today sharing with you an interactive card using Mama Elephant stamps.

I really love interactive cards, I think that they are fun and I can always add more critters so that's a win win :)

Now for my card today I started by stamping the critters from Yappy woofmas stamp set and also so accessories from Merry mantle stamp set from Mama Elephant , and then I colour them using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers .

After that I took an A2 size card and started working on inside of my card , and first I ink blended the upper part of the card using Distress inks Antique linen and the I took brick stencil from my stash and using Vintage photo distress ink I started ink blending again to create a brick type of wall . Now was time to work on the floor and I took a piece of cardstock which measures 15x12.5cm and ink it using Peacock feathers distress ink and here too I took an stencil and added some details to the floor.

Next I've measures 1 cm on one side of the cardstock and then at 10.5cm and at 11.5 cm on the both sides. After scoring and folding we have now the parts that actually create the floating floor. I've attached the floor to the card base using a strong tape .

To add the critters I cut a small line on the floor and the creating an L out of acetate I've attach them to the card base .
Now that all the critters are in place I added the sentiment from Avery Elle A merry little Christmas stamp set using gold embossing powder and Versa mark ink !

Hope you like my card ! Thank you so much for stopping by today ! Until next time have a great day!

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
